Camera Boss to Photo Boss builds on our foundation course, Be The Boss of Your Camera. So we'll start with a quick recap of what you've already learned and then get into the details of how to take a great photographs.

We'll start at the beginning with a fully charged up DSLR and freshly formatted memory cards, then work all the way through to post production and editing.

Along the way we'll really Get To Grips with the Fundamentals:

  • Shooting in RAW
  • Focusing for different situations
  • Controlling Exposure
  • White Balance
  • Shooting in Aperture Priority
  • Shooting in Shutter Priority
  • Shooting in Manual (it's not so scary)
  • Choosing the correct focal length for the situation

We'll learn to Master Light:

  • Types of Natural Light
  • How to see Light
  • How to use Light
  • How to control Light
  • Off Camera Flash

We'll see how far we can stretch our creative muscles with Creative Elements:

  • Composition Techniques
  • Photographing Reflections
  • Photographing Water
  • Photographing Design Elements
  • Black and White versus Colour Photography
  • Photographing with Scale in mind
  • High Key and Low Key Photography Styles

Then, like any shoot, we'll finish off with Post Processing:

Jane is a full time professional portrait photographer and the course creator for The Lens Lounge.

She has been obsessed with photography since she was 7 and got her first SLR camera when backpacking around Australia in 1992. The “fancy new” camera was a very old Pentax, already 9 years out production. That’s when the big love started. She took photography courses in London and started freelancing as an assistant photographer to commercial and fashion photographers.

In 1999 she started photographing weddings and in 2009 opened her first photographic studio, concentrating on portraiture: boudoir, maternity, newborns and family photography.

In 2016 she began shooting mainly on location, concentrating on: families, model portfolios and personal branding shoots for business owners and bloggers.

Because she firmly believes that everyone should have great photos of their loved ones and places they've been, she's putting all her knowledge and experience into creating photography courses for all levels of expertise.

Your photographs are your history. Make it great!
